breakfast for one...

One of the things I like most about blogging is the inspiration I get from all the wonderful blogs out there.  I have just been loving all the beautiful yellow tablescapes I've seen, so I took a stroll around my house looking for yellow to create a sunshine tablescape of my own.  I added a quick trip to the Goodwill store to fill in the gaps and this is what I came up with...


I started with a round placemat that was on clearance at Kohls and added this yummy sunflower yellow fiestaware...


I layered the yellow setting with a white salad plate from the Goodwill store just to break it up a bit.


A napkin ring was wrapped with this pretty daisy ribbon that I had in my stash...


I embellished a plain white napkin with this cute lemony ric-rac...

The adorable little polka dotted planter was another Goodwill find...


The clear juice glass and the daisy candy jar, filled with lemon drops, again...Goodwill...


It's always fun to enter a Thriftstore with something specific in mind and just kind of close off any other color.  In my case this made everything yellow or daisy related just stand out.  For $5.00 I found five things  that really helped to put the finishing touches on my table.


Now I'm all set for my morning coffee, and a nice leisurely breakfast...

Have a wonderful day,
Patty

Such a sunny tablescape. What great GW finds. It makes me want to rush over to mine, but I never seem to find the cute things.
Did you put the ric-rac on your napkins?
I love how your love of the Lord shines through your blog too.

Lovein all the sunshine yellow! Very inviting. :)

Every time I try to leave you a comment the whole page just rolls up. That started happening after you changed the Lo of your blog. Is it just me or have others told you that too?

Your table is so pretty and cheery! You really brought the sunshine in. Don't you just love to Goodwill shop? I like your idea of going with a mission. I need to try that because everything and every color calls my name when I go, LOL!
